COMMUNICATIVE TEACHING APPROACH

Training sessions are as interactive and enjoyable as possible with plenty of opportunities for controlled practice. A session typically follows the pattern: presentation of language; task completion using the new language e.g. interviews, role-plays, surveys, team problem solving etc. The exercises are closely monitored with feedback and correction by the trainer. This approach has consistently produced improvements in fluency, accuracy and confidence.
